While doing press for her new movie Battle in Seattle, Charlize Theron told Josh Horowitz of MTV.com that she can’t figure out why the hell people watch The Hills:
Theron: [Long pause, laughs.] So I watched a couple episodes. I was doing a world tour at the time, so I watched them in a couple languages. I realized that this f—ing show is huge. Now I’m going to ask you a question: Why?
MTV: Why what?
Theron: Why is it so big? It’s about nothing! This is a free country. Freedom of speech! You can tell me right now to my face that “Reindeer Games” was a piece of sh–. That’s totally fine. But “The Hills” is about nothing. I think the girls are beautiful and when they cry their mascara runs and that’s real, but I don’t get it!
Charlize Theron: Smoking hot and hates The Hills. I don’t want to alarm anybody, but I have an erection. Don’t panic; it’s more scared of you than you are of it.
